The State of TV

Postby thatsmell » Wed Aug 29, 2018 10:54 am

What is everyone watching these days?

Better Call Saul on AMC is great and really getting into Breaking Bad territory this season.
Ozark on Netflix is highly entertaining and season 2 will be released on Aug 31.
HBO's Hard Knock Cleveland Browns is also entertaining, albeint someowhat simlar each season, but seeing these monster athletes up close and personal is scary. Training Camp is no joke. Even for the downtrodden Browns.

We're wrapping up Wild Wild Country on Netflix - great documentary about the Rajneesh movement.

Making a Murderer was also great.

Got into "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" on Amazon...good writing, the production level is top-notch, and the female lead is pretty easy on the eyes...just sayin'...

The lead in promo to Better call Saulhooked me into checking out Lodge 49, which follows.

Pleasantly surprised (so far). It's got kind of a Cohen Bros, Big Lebowski thing goin'.
It's got a funky SoCal vibe, not unlike Terriers, which is also worth a look if it's avail on Netflix.

evil genius was good. 4 part documentary about a group of acquaintances that orchestrated some grisly murders.

Gotta admit I am really enjoying Pooch Sleuth Inspector Rex on DVD:

Also watching Wallander (the Krister Henriksson series).
